There is a creepy door in the basement of Barnard Hall. Internal Editor Sarah Kinney is here to offer her thoughts. That is all. Every Tuesday and Thursday I find myself in the basement of Barnard Hall, pacing around before going to ballet. Outside the dance studios and fitness center is an oddly positioned set […]

Clubs We Wish Columbia Had

We hope everybody is out enjoying the activities fair today (especially now that it’s not 100º outside)! If you’re anything like me, the more you walked around the endless rows of tables, the more you got to thinking about other clubs you wish we had here at Columbia. Of course anyone can always just start whatever club […]

How To Beat The Heat

We get it: it’s hot out. Like, really fucking hot. Like global warming is an evil, sweaty monster who points and laughs whenever our parents/the administration looks at us and says, “We survived the city without AC in our day!” Okay, yes, but back then it wasn’t 90º all through September. Sigh. Rant over. Anyway, we here […]

Peoplehop: Pawel Maslag, GS ’18 Campbell Award Winner And Activist Extraordinaire

This spring, GS senior Pawel Maslag was awarded the Campbell Award, which “recognizes exceptional leadership and Columbia spirit.” But that’s arguably Pawel’s least exciting accomplishment. From running across the country to being a trained WWE wrestler to serving on the Presidential Advisory Committee on Sexual Assault, Pawel has accomplished more in his 20-some years than […]

Dictionary.com defines “bacchanal” as “an occasion of drunken revelry; orgy.” While that about sums it up, I have a feeling that that description of the day may not fly with your mom. In order to explain Bacchanal to all your various loved ones, you may have to tweak the definition in order to suit their agenda. […]

While the bar has always been (in)famous for playing oddball movies on the TV screen in the back of the bar, we here at Bwog have been brainstorming what new movies/TV shows […]
